Miami's Newest Luxury Residence Tower Announced
Construction cranes keep coming to South Florida, as evidenced this week by Miami's newest boutique high-rise, Elysee Residences. The newly announce condo tower will feature only 100 units in a 57-story waterfront tower set directly on Biscayne Bay at 700 NE 23rd Street in the neighborhood of Edgewater.
The development comes on the heels of the success of Biscayne Beach, a nearby residential tower now under development by the same team, which is almost sold-out. Elysee is being developed by South Florida-based development firm Two Roads Development, an entity formed by the parent company of Eastview Development. Elysee will break ground in the first quarter of 2016, with completion slated for the second quarter of 2018.
Elysee will offer expansive three- to five-bedroom residences with den options, as well as duplexes and full-floor penthouses, measuring from 2,660 up to 4,000 square feet in size. With a maximum of only two units per floor, every residence at Elysee will boast direct unobstructed views of Biscayne Bay, Miami Beach and the downtown Miami skyline. Preconstruction reservations are now underway, with prices ranging from $1.65 million to over $10 million, and averaging about $750 per square foot.
"As downtown Miami continues to emerge as a true 24/7 community, East Edgewater is growing more and more vibrant," said Reid Boren, partner at Two Roads Development. "Today's buyers have access to a host of luxuries and amenities that simply didn't exist in the last cycle - from world-class arts and cultural destinations to some of the best shops and restaurants in Miami. And Elysee is at the center of it all!"
Designed by acclaimed Miami architect Bernardo Fort-Brescia, founder of Arquitectonica, the 57-story glass structure will boast a unique three-tiered telescoping shape marking the tallest residential high-rise in the East Edgewater neighborhood.
Elysee's elegant design concepts are the creation of France's top interior designer Jean-Louis Deniot. Featured on the ELLE Décor and AD 100 lists of the world's preeminent talents in architecture and interior design, the Paris-based designer has been recognized worldwide for his eclectic and emblematic interiors. With projects across the globe, from New Delhi to Moscow to Beverly Hills, Deniot has brought his unique sophistication to some of the most important residences in the world. One of his latest commissions is the restoration of the revered Château Latour winery for French business mogul François Pinault.
Leading Elysee's sales and marketing efforts is Cervera Real Estate, South Florida's industry leader in luxury condominium sales for more than four decades. "Jean-Louis Deniot's visionary designs, coupled with Bernardo Fort-Brescia's distinctive architectural eye, Elysee brings French-elegance with a modern flair to East Edgewater," said Alicia Cervera Lamadrid, managing partner of Cervera Real Estate. "From the intimacy and exclusivity of living in a boutique-style building, to the full-suite of amenities and white glove concierge services, Elysee is the address of choice for residents seeking the highest level of luxury living in Miami."
Life at Elysee will radiate from two sky-high amenity decks. The 7th floor amenity level will include a 75-foot resort pool; an outdoor summer kitchen and barbecue terrace; fitness center and yoga studio; children's room; men and women's spa with sauna, steam shower and private massage rooms; and a blow dry bar. The building's dramatic 30th floor amenity level, which will feature incredible 360-degree bay and city views, is designed to serve as an extension of each residence, home to a Great Room; a Grand Dining Room with seating for up to 30 guests; a Chef's Kitchen/Table with indoor and outdoor seating; a library and private theater room; a full lounge/bar; and a wine room.
All residences will feature floor-to-ceiling glass windows and sliding doors; private elevators and foyers; 10- to 11-foot ceiling heights; designer faucets and fixtures; premium appliances; top-of-the-line Italian kitchen and bathroom cabinetry; as well as two east/west-facing terraces with 180-degree sunrise/sunset views. Units will also be fitted with an advanced Savant® wireless technology system allowing residents to control A/C thermostat, window treatments, lighting and entertainment systems from a smartphone device.
Elysee is located in Miami's elite East Edgewater enclave, a fast-growing bayfront neighborhood situated east of Biscayne Boulevard and between the Venetian and Julia Tuttle causeways. The surrounding Miami Design District, Wynwood Arts District, Midtown, Miami Beach and downtown Miami neighborhoods are all within easy reach, providing the top destinations for luxury shopping, high-end dining, and world-class arts, culture and entertainment.
